        Thanks Yogesh.  One more question.  Is there some “trick” to entering more than one DVD mount point in the SUM screen?  The SUM 1.0 SP16 guide indicates that entering more than one is possible, but the SUM screen does not seem to allow entry of more than one, even though there are multiple lines available on the screen.

              I dont think you can add additional lines but you can try manually typing in to empty lines there and see.

                Yes, that is the actual problem, it is not possible to type anything into any of the fields of the  already provided additional lines.  I tried to enter the DVD Type, Description, and the Mount Point, but nothing can be entered into those fields, even though they appear to be open for entry.

    Hi Yogesh

    When you generate the xml stack file. Will that also include the Java Dvds 51050949  ?

    I am getting the following Error in the SUM tool during Java config An error occured during the execution of Create stack from stack file of action configure.

    Service com.sap.sdt.jspm.service.specifyqueue.SpecifyQueueService failed with the following message

    Cannot construct a support package stack from file F:\Download\MP_Stack_044_.xml.

    Thanks

    Hello Yogesh Patel,

    We are planning to upgrade SolMan 7.1 to 7.2
    I have a doubt, as we are keeping the DB (oracle) as it is. Is TREX installation mandatory for that.
    Also, what would happen if we do not install TREX?

    -regards,
    Nitin Soni

      Hello Nitin,

      I am not too sure about your system configuration.

      But as far I know you can upgrade TREX.

      Question you need to ask is – What will happen to Indexes created by TREX?

      Thanks
      Yogesh

    I ran into the same error about a missing “NO_INFO” file, during an EHP8 upgrade on ERP, using SUM SP19 PL4.  Note 2314382 talks about this error, but the resolution did not resolve my error.  Since the error is referring to a non critical file that is missing, I simply created an empty “NO_INFO” file in the profile directory, and then repeated the failed step.

    My EHP8 upgrade process is still active currently, so I cannot confirm that this work-around did not cause other issues, but the SUM process has proceeded on through several other steps, so I am hopeful that the issue has been bypassed.  The note below may help others with a similar error, however.

          Yep i have seen it, it did not help, as it mentioned by Russel ;). I mean much probably there was an issue with initial distributed installation….

           

          In case somebody get the same error.
          I created the file with touch command (the same like Russel did), upgrade successfully  finished, with no issues, only satellite  ABAP application servers kernel was not updated, so I did it manually later on.

           

          Will be good to know what exactly is executed on this phase.

          I guess sapcpe binaries copy should be executed on this step.

    I am getting an error when installing SCS server. After SCS server started it fails on get process command. (GetProcessList

    FAIL: NIECONN_BROKEN (No such file or directory), NiRawRead failed in plugin_sapfrecv())

    Did you get this error? If yes how did you resolve it?

    Hello Yogesh,

    At which point of the upgrade should the SPAU adjustments be performed once SUM finishes: before or after the dual-stack split?

    Thank you,
